The admissions process depends on publication of SSC results, says education board official

The admissions process for the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent programmes for the 2020-21 academic session at colleges across the country is likely to start on June 6.

“If the SSC results are published this month [May], we will announce the admission schedule in the first week of June,” Harun-ur-Rashid, College Inspector of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, told Dhaka Tribune on Tuesday.

“The process depends entirely on the publication of SSC results. The education ministry is expecting the results to be published before Eid. So, there should be no problem to start the process immediately [after that],” he said.

The online application process for admission will be based on the results of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent examinations, as in previous years, Harun added.

Previously, the board intended to start the admission process by May 10 but the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic compelled them to change the schedule.

On Monday, Prof Md Abul Bashar, controller of examinations at the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka, who is also convener of the Inter-Education Board Examination Controller Sub-Committee, said results for the SSC and equivalent examinations are likely to be published this month.

According to the Education Ministry, 16,35,240 candidates from 28,884 institutions participated this year under nine general boards.

Of these, 8,43,322 were female students and 7,91,918 were males. Also, 2,61,254 students took the Dakhil examinations, while 1,31,285 students sat for the Bangladesh Technical Education Board (BTEB) exams.

Last year, the results were published on May 6.

The SSC and equivalent examinations took place from February 3 to March 5 this year.
